The Candidate by Lis Wiehl (A Newsmakers Novel)

Last Updated on December 29, 2017 by ellen

Another relaxing weekend with a good book. This time, I spend most of Saturday on the couch reading The Candidate by Lis Wiehl. If you remember, I reviewed The Newsmakers by Lis Wiehl a few months ago. The Candidate is book two in The Newsmakers series. A book was provided for this review.

The Candidate by Lis Wiehl

Mike Ortiz is a dynamic war hero favored to win the White House. Standing by his side is his glamorous and adoring wife, Celeste. But something about this seemingly perfect couple troubles Erica. Is Celeste really who she seems? And most importantly, what really happened in that squalid Al-Qaeda prison where Mike Ortiz spent nine months?

But more than the nation’s future is at stake. Erica’s relentless search for the truth puts the life of her preteen daughter Jenny in danger, even as Erica’s own dark past threatens to overtake her.

In her latest Newsmakers thriller, NewYork Times bestselling author and Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl weaves a taut and chilling story. The Candidate is packed with political intrigue and media manipulation as the lust for power turns deadly indeed.

My thoughts:

Erica is a top investigative reporter at GNN and she thinks something is off about one of the candidates for the next election. He seems a little bit too flat to her and she has a hunch that something just isn’t right. She starts investigating his past and the people in his life and she becomes even more convinced that there is something wrong. Then, people start dying that she’s spoken to and she knows she’s onto something.

The Candidate by Lis Wiehl was every bit as amazing as The Newsmakers. When I started the book, I was convinced that I knew what was happening. As I kept reading, my entire world was turned upside down as I really started to understand who was behind Mike Ortiz’s run for the election and what that meant. The ending totally surprised me and left me wanting another novel in this series. I highly recommend this book and hope the author has another one soon!
